Jonah

DJ Jonah Pearl's Instagram
Jonah represents our staff as our Georgia-born DJ. When asked what he likes about music, his response was, “what I like about music is the fact that everyone reacts differently to different songs, but still finds enjoyment in it. I appreciate how music is not just a conscious enjoyment, but also stirs the subconscious.” When he joined SSS in 2009, he started out as a party motivator; with a love for music and a knack for cutting a rug, he quickly developed into a solid DJ assistant. In 2010, Jonah became a Lead MC/DJ Entertainment Host in the Split arsenal, and received our Rising Star for DJs award the same year. Since 2011, Jonah and LeVar have shared, and swapped the title of Most Requested DJ. Jonah is a natural; his smile, his personality, and his genuine care for people makes him the perfect fit for a party as the host and DJ! From the western North Carolina mountains, to Charlotte, to the South Carolina coast, and as far away as Puerto Rico, with over 400 weddings worth of experience under his belt as a Lead Entertainment Host for Split Second Sound (a substantial amount by special request), when he arrives for your event, you know he is ready for whatever the day brings. Along with his experience, the time and dedication he puts into preparing his music, his team player attitude, and getting to know his clients definitely contributes to why so many past clients, and vendors, love and refer him so much.

    Split Second Sound, and Jonah Pearl in particular, was one of the best decisions I made about my wedding. He made all of my guests feel welcome and a part of the party by asking each guest if he or she had a song request during dinner. I think my favorite part was when he got out on the dance floor to lead everyone in group dances and made sure everyone was having a great time all night. He also worked with our officiant and guitarist to make sure they were prepared for their portions and managed the reception timeline. Bottom line, Jonah was fantastic, and I would highly recommend him and Split Second Sound to anyone! Jonah, you truly made our wedding memorable.

    We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of DJ for our wedding. Jonah and Split Second Sound did a phenomenal job. He was able to bring together a large group of people from all over the world on the dance floor. I don’t think there was ever a dull moment on the dance floor. From the moment the music started, people were out of their chairs enjoying the night. Jonah was able to accommodate our Irish dancers and was able to smoothly transition from the dancers to the actual party. We had such a blast and the music was really the best part! We would absolutely recommend Jonah and Split Second Sound to everyone.

    Split Second Sound was recommended to us and we could not have been happier with our choice. Jonah was our DJ for our wedding and he did a fantastic job. He set time aside before the event, to discuss our taste in music and what we wanted the vibe to be like at the wedding. Jonah was very easy to work with and immediately invested himself into making our reception just the way we wanted it to be. Jonah was great at entertaining and getting people on the dance floor. He took requests and went around to tables asking what kind of music they liked, so he could incorporate that into the evening, making sure everyone had a great time. The sound quality was great and Jonah was well organized to make sure the night went smoothly. We were so happy with our choice to use Split Second Sound. Thank you Jonah for making our night so memorable!

    Choosing Split Second Sound was the first thing we did after we got engaged. From the beginning planning stages we knew we would not have to worry about a thing.  I could not be happier with our choice. Jonah was so amazing. He helped us incorporate my young daughter into all of the special moments which really meant a lot to us. He was able to get all our guests, young and old, on the dance floor and made it such a memorable night for everyone. We can not thank you enough for making our special day that much more special! I will be recommending Jonah and Split Second Sound to all my newly engaged friends and family.   Thank you again Jonah for everything! We love you! Jami, Josh an McKenna :)

    I need you to know that my wedding day, June 12, 2015 was one of the most stressful days of my life. My flowers were wrong, it started raining before my outdoor ceremony, etc. That being said, I never once had to worry about my music or my DJ. From the minute we first met Jonah we knew we were making the right decision. To begin with he was there throughout the planning process, and always available if I needed to change anything. Then my big day came and he rolled with it when we had to be moved inside. And then the party started. My now husband and I wanted a party. And Jonah delivered. From taking requests from our guests and thankfully knowing when to run those by us, and when to just go with it. He is a true DJ, being able to mix the songs just right in order to make the night flow seamlessly. Our guests were a rowdy bunch who just wanted to dance and karaoke to Don't Stop Believing, wanted to do interpretive dance to Bohemian Rhapsody, to wanting to do the Cupid Shuffle (which he knew to not play). Jonah made it work and made it amazing. We cannot thank him enough. He even danced with me to Man in the Mirror, and photo bombed my selfie with my new husband. I laugh every time I look at it. The average age of our wedding was about 38, and Jonah knew how to get everyone of them on the floor. Most of our friends can be quoted as saying, "If more weddings were like this one, I'd go to more." We owe it to Jonah. So thank you guys and especially Jonah for making our "wedding" AKA a party with a 5 minute ceremony as a formality, the best day of our lives.

    We absolutely loved working with Jonah. He was very generous and helpful during the entire planning process. As emcee, his announcements and transitions were seamless and not at all intrusive. He did an amazing job interpreting our scattered notes and lists into a perfect playlist that yielded tons of dancing! I always worried that the dance floor at my wedding would be too empty, but it was full all night. We were a little nervous about Split Second's policy of asking guests to give them requests because we had specific ideas about the type of music we wanted (we were being picky), but Jonah was subtle and managed to play requests without straying at all from our vision and style. Everyone had a great time, especially during the 90s-and-early-2000s dance party we were dead-set on for the last hour! It was great fun and we didn't leave the dance floor all night.

    Thanks so much for your follow-up!  I tried to find you last night before you left, but I was too late.  I wanted to tell you THANK YOU so much for working our Father Daughter Dance!  I think the girls had an absolute blast!  You were so easy and professional to work with, and you played all the right music.  The girls also really loved the lights that you brought and I thought it brought another level to our annual dance.  I just want you to know, this is the first year I’ve really seen the dads on the dance floor!  I think they had just as good as a time as their girls did.  Thanks for making our event top-notch!

    We absolutely LOVED Jonah. When I was looking for a DJ I just put a simple status up on Facebook hoping to get some good feedback. I had about 20 comments, 16 of those where either recommending Jonah from split second sound or just split second sound in general. After going in and meeting with LeVar I was blown away by this company and had no hesitation hiring them. I truly believe its the best decision I made in my wedding process.Everything that could go wrong in a wedding process went wrong at our wedding. We lost our venue 6 weeks before and we where our new venues 1st wedding, needless to say there where a lot of hiccups on that day. I was blown away at the professionalism of Jonah not only on the day but the whole process. He went above and beyond to make sure all of my questions were answered, he was always willing to give his professional opinion on what would go the most smooth. The day of the wedding the was beyond amazing! He made the wedding go so smoothly and was so detailed in every single thing. and also got out on the floor led the dances and was so much fun! I would recommend split second sound to anyone who is looking for a amazing company/DJ. These people really have it together which really puts a brides mind at ease.

    From the bottom of our heart we could not have asked for a better ceremony and reception and a lot of the credit has to go to your team.  They were professional through the entire day keeping our guests included in every moment!  Every thing that we had talked about prior to the event was taking into consideration and they nailed the exact vibe that we had asked for.  Your team should be very proud of the experience and professionalism that they brought to our event.  All of our guests had nothing but amazing things to say about the music selections.  Special thanks to Jonah and his partner.  I appreciate his time and communication on getting to know both Tim and I!I would definitely recommend your team to anyone else who is having a wedding in the area! We will also keep you in mind for future events.

    Kyle and I would like to say thank you to Split Second Sound and especially to our DJ Jonah Pearl and his assistant Bradley.  We were so amazed by how awesome they were in preparing for our wedding and executing everything flawlessly.  We had the best time of our lives and all our guests had a blast on the dance floor.  Jonah and Bradley were so professional and made sure everyone had a good time.  We were so impressed with everything and cannot thank them enough for everything they did.  They are absolutely the best and are so happy we found your company to DJ our wedding.

    We had such a great time at our reception, and we had so many compliments on the music and Jonah. Everyone loved that Jonah asked them for song requests. I felt like he made the entire reception flow really smoothly, which I really appreciated. Feel free to use us for a reference. It was a great reception!

    We had a great experience and are so grateful to Jonah Pearl.  He has a real gift for DJing/hosting celebrations and we so appreciated all the care he took to make sure everything was just as we requested.  He was one of the most complimented parts of our celebration.  We also appreciated the general organization and support of SSS.

    I want to commend both your business and your employee Jonah Pearl. Though our business doesn’t do a ton of weddings, within about 60 seconds I had a great deal of respect for Jonah. He was a perfect vendor liaison and interacted with all guests very professionally.  After meeting him I was eager to get his card and learn more about the company in which I learned of your process for hiring and training and I commend you guys, you have a solid formula.  Keep up the good work and I’m sure many of your employees are great, but I’ll certainly be touting Jonah anytime I have the opportunity to any wedding clients we have.
  • Angela Bowen
    I wanted to take the opportunity to say what an awesome night we had last night at the Harrelson/Wuellner wedding! I've worked several venues as well as attended several venues that have had a DJ, but I have to say that Jonah was by far the best that I've ever seen. He was not only professional but friendly, personable, and knew how to throw a party! The bride and groom danced all night till last call and could've danced for several hours past then they were having so much fun! We could not have picked a better DJ with Jonah and Cameron!  I hope our paths cross again in the near future and look forward to working with you again.

    I wanted to reach out to you today and tell you I had a great time working with Jonah Pearl during a wedding event on May 3rd. We did pyro during the wedding and a small show after the wedding and Jonah was a huge help! Split Second Sound is on my list of DJs to contact due to the fact that he did so well and was so nice. Give this man a AAA rating because he deserves it!
  • Meghan Molinari
    It will be very hard to sum up my thoughts and appreciation about our DJ in just a few sentences but I will do my best :-)    Jonah, our DJ was absolutely everything and more we could have ever imagined. From our meetings prior to the wedding to the actual big day, he blew away any expectations my husband or I ever had. From the interaction Jonah and his assistant had with every single guest to making sure Seth and I were always having the best time ever, was purely amazing. Hands down would recommend Jonah for anyone's wedding. He seriously has the natural gift for this, and made our wedding the absolute best day of our lives. We cannot thank you guys enough for the amazing experience we had with Split Second Sound and would recommend you guys to anyone that was to ever ask us about wedding DJ's!!! Oh yeah, and his dance skills on the dance floor are the bomb!!!! ;-)   Thank you so much once again!!!!!

  • Ashleigh Dugger
    To describe in one word...AMAZING. Jonah and the other DJ did an amazing job at my wedding reception. They made sure everything went together perfectly and worked along side the other vendors to make sure everything happened exactly when it was supposed to. Neither myself, or my family had to worry about a thing. They took care of everything. Also they played the best music all night, and everyone had an amazing time dancing all night. The kids loved it. Everyone has complemented me on the DJ service since the wedding. The money was definitely well spent! I would recommend to everyone!

    We were beyond impressed/pleased with Jonah and SSS.  We had multiple compliments on the music and I honestly have not been to a wedding yet, (and I have been to a lot), where people had as much fun as they did at our wedding and that many people danced....ALL NIGHT! I am not just saying this because it was my wedding... it is honestly the truth.  We would love to help spread the word of how great SSS is!!

    We were so happy with Jonah Pearl as our DJ and would recommend him without question!!  To be honest, we were at first a little hesitant going with such a large company, we didn't want to get lost in the shuffle with everyone else.  However, that didn't happen at all.  We liked the fact that there was a backup for everything, including the DJ, should something have happened on the night of our wedding.  We ended up requesting Jonah after a couple of people recommended him to us (including Nathan at the Charlotte City Club where we got married) and liked Jonah right away.  He was so friendly, professional, and we felt comfortable with him, which is so important for most of your wedding vendors.  He asked a lot of great questions to figure out what kind of music and atmosphere we wanted on our big day and he followed through with everything we said and requested.  He even played some bits of pieces of Star Wars music throughout our reception as I asked:)   He stayed in contact up until the wedding and always responded to any questions or thoughts I had quickly.  He checked in with me during the reception to make sure I was happy with everything and any song I went and requested night of was of course played immediately.  Several of our friends and family said that our wedding was one of the most fun weddings they have ever been to and I know Jonah was a huge part of that!  Again, we would recommend Split Second Sound and especially Jonah to anyone who needs a DJ for their event!

    Jonah and his partner Danny at Split Second Sound did an amazing job at my wedding! I'm so glad I found Split Second Sound at the Charlotte Bridal fair in 2012! I knew then that I would choose them as DJs! Everything went perfect! Everyone has complimented me on the DJ's entertainment and everyone had a great time! I would definitely use them again, and would recommend to everyone. They made everything go so smoothly. Again, thank you and great job guys!

    Jonah was amazing!. He did it all. No equipment failures. No dead air ever! Wireless worked without drop outs, cables and booth were not in the way, and lighting was perfect. Mix was a perfect blend and not overpowering.  It was good to see you did not use mediocre equipment as well. I have been doing sound for ~20 years and the fact you use Mackie PAs etc. for me made for a worry free event. Interaction with the crowd was top notch and fun. We didn't have to worry about a thing. With all the craziness of the wedding itself it was beneficial to use your company Jonah because of the experience you/he has. We knew nothing about what needed to be done when or how. Jonah interacted professionally with the bridal party, wedding coordinator, minister etc... and was ‘on it’ 100% of the time. He was there early, set up and packed up invisibly. In Summary- It was a major success. Jonah is a major asset for your company! If your other DJs are half as good as Jonah your company will go far.

    I used Jonah from split second sound and he was FABULOUS! He was very nice and listened to exactly what we wanted! We had a smaller wedding with only 60 people and everyone said it was the most they have danced at a wedding in a long time! He was very professional and really nice! I would highly recommend using them and requesting Jonah!

    AWESOME!!!!!! I loved Split Second Sound from the first time I sat down and met with Vinny. I had a list of questions (kind of like an interview) and Vinny was very knowledgeable and confident that they would be able to bring our wedding day to LIFE….and they did just THAT! Jonah was our DJ. He was so awesome. I loved is personality and demeanor. I am SO THANKFUL that he was assigned to our wedding. He was the ultimate perfect fit. Thank you!!

    Our wedding was amazing because all of our guests were entertained down to the last second!! Jonah was so calm and accommodating the whole night. He kept us on a great schedule to make sure we got to have all of our traditional photo ops without rushing us through any part of the night. There were guests of all ages dancing until we left for the end of the night. I would say that out of 200 guests there were about 150 still there when we left. I think that this is because of how much fun they were having.  Thanks for making our wedding so memorable!

    Everything was great and Jonah and his assistant Demar did a great job getting everyone up and dancing.  They were able to entertain all ages in the crowd.  All of our friends and family keep raving about how much fun they had.  Thanks again to Jonah and everyone at split second sound for making our reception amazing!

    We had an amazing experience. I have seen split second sound in action before at the Ritz Carlton and I knew I was in for great service and a ton of fun. Jonah was fantastic from the very beginning with his friendly emails and willingness to help. He really made the process fun and stress free. Our wedding was absolutely seamless from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the fabulous reception and I can honestly say that Jonah made that happen! He and Demar kept the reception running smoothly even with our crazy families. I could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding! Thank you again and you are welcome to use us as a reference.   Have a great day!   Warm Regards,   Whitney Howell Hecht

    As we began planning for our wedding, we knew that the DJ was what would "make or break" the entire event. However, in booking Jonah with SSS we were confident that our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were going to be absolutely perfect. Little did we know... Jonah went above and beyond our expectations! Our family and friends were so impressed with him and have been talking about how wonderful he was ever since. The grooms twin brother is getting married July of 2014 and I am positive that they will be following in our footsteps in using SSS for their wedding. I could not be happier with the way everything turned out; I would recommend Jonah and Split Second Sound to ANYONE! Thank you guys for your awesome services!!

He was the easiest to work with out of all my vendors and always responded to our emails or calls right away. Everything that we had discussed with him was pulled off seamlessly and exactly how we had wanted it. My husband's mother wanted to combine three songs for their mother/son dance and he was totally okay with that and even requested the file in advance instead of receiving the CD on the day - I was just really impressed with how committed he was to pulling everything off without a hitch. We told Jonah that most important to us was to have our wedding be a dance party and he certainly delivered. Everyone was on the dance floor all night and we received so many compliments about the DJ. We had guests of all ages and backgrounds (including several from South Africa and New Zealand) and they all had such a good time. One older uncle told us that if anyone didn't have a good time at our wedding they were dead! And our photographer called our reception a "rave-ception." Our guests loved how Jonah and Adam went around asking them for song requests and we all loved the reverse anniversary dance to get the party started - it was very special to some of the older couples to be able to represent their long marriages like that. At one point early in night there were two 80s songs played back-to-back and the crowd on the dance floor started to shrink a little. Within 10 seconds of me noticing the slow-down, the music changed and everyone came back out. I think that is a true testament to how great Adam and Jonah are at reading the crowd. And after that the party never stopped! Thank you so much SSS, Jonah and his assistant for such an amazing wedding. If we have anything to say about it, we will be seeing a lot of you at our friends' weddings in the future.

    Split Second Sound, more specifically Jonah Pearl, was PERFECT for our wedding. SSS is an incredible company with many talented DJs and entertainers. Jonah did a phenomenal job! At least half (probably more but I wasn't counting) of the guests complimented his work at our wedding. He got people to dance who I was sure were not going to dance at all. He was very respectful to my husband and myself and checked the song requests with us to make sure that nothing was played that we didn't want to hear. He truly made our night spectacular and I will rave about him and SSS for the rest of my life.

Jonah was the perfect DJ for my wedding and extremely professional. It was a rockin wedding and reception, and Split Second Sound and Jonah deserve all my thanks! Thank you for your DJ expertise and bringing smiles and mad dancing to myself,Tom, London England, Greenville SC,and all the other peeps from far and wide that attended the festivities!!!

He did everything according to the schedule as discussed, had a good vibe with the crowd, played awesome songs that everyone was connected to and made any changes that we asked last minute. People were dancing all night long and it was because of Jonah's effort that he put into our wedding. I have already recommended you guys to friends that are getting married and I hope to continue to recommend your services to other people. Thank you for everything, I can't imagine what the wedding could have been like without Jonah and the team. If you have any other questions, let me know. Thanks!!

    Split Second Sound was the best investment we could have made for our reception. Jonah is an amazing DJ and really set the tone for our wedding. Even our grandparents were jumping around and saying it was the best wedding they have ever been too. Any wedding must have good music, food and drinks- but I believe SSS truly made our wedding a party for all ages. My husband and I could barely talk to people because all we wanted to do was dance! Everything from the multicolor lights, to the purple uplights, to the two men DJ system- it was awesome! I kept making changes to the songs after I met with the DJ and he was totally cool accommodating all and mixing songs for us too! Music mixed for all the decades! Thank you Split Second Sound for making our wedding reception the best ever!!!!

    We had an amazing time, and I have never seen my father move that way. I was pretty sure he was going to immobile the next day (he was fine though).  Jonah did a fabulous job, and he really got everyone going! I have gotten so many compliments on the music and the DJ, the fact that Jonah went the extra mile and played Swedish music was just so much appreciated by everyone, even those who did not understand the words thought that it was a really nice touch! Friends of mine who just got engaged and attended the wedding have already asked me about you guys! I will absolutely recommend Split Second Sound for any event!

I seriously can't thank you enough for letting us have him for our wedding, it was absolutely amazing, fun and everything that we wanted! Thank you thank you!!

Thanks Split Second Sound!

    Words can not describe how amazing Jonah was at our wedding reception. I am still getting compliments about how much fun all of our guest had. He was very professional, timely, and attentive to my request for the type of music to be played. Guests enjoyed the ability to request songs and well as being asked about which songs they wanted played. I feel like he made the night more memorable for everyone. Thanks again!

    We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the evening with Jonah Pearl at our son's wedding on Saturday evening, 6/18, at Providence Country Club. Jonah did a wonderful job and we really appreciated his personal attention to wedding guests. It made the evening so  much fun from beginning to end. Ryan and Leigh were so happy they chose Split Second Sound for their special day. We were very pleased with professional service Jonah provided. He should be commended for making our evening memorable.

    Jonah was the perfect fit for the wedding and reception.  His energy, enthusiasm, and attention to detail was excellent.  During the event he often engaged the guests, asking for requests and encouraging everyone to get up and participate.  From all of the comments received afterwards, everyone had a great time.     I would certainly use Split Second Sound again when the need arises for a party with a DJ and I would definitely request Jonah.     I would definitely provide a reference for anyone who is considering using Split Second Sound.

    Jonah has been the most reliable and enjoyable Dj we have had all year. We have utilized Jonah's services for four separate events now and each time have been extremely pleased with him. He is not only a talented DJ but enjoys getting involved with the crowd which just helps build up the atmosphere even more. Most importantly, Jonah was extremely easy to work with and very flexible with the chaotic schedules that many fraternities live by. I would recommend Jonah as a DJ to anyone who is looking to have a great time listening to great music. Sam SteinPi Kappa Alpha Social Chair

    Thank you Jonah Pearl and Split Second Sound for an awesome job at the Hinely / Reid Wedding Saturday night, October 9th.  We were amazed at the professional way Jonah conducted himself as the MC, as well as the perfect timing of all the music.  The music itself was exactly what our bride chose and you nailed it exactly!  We were so pleased with all the music, the sound system, and the special lighting was a bonus we just loved.  Thank you again for taking us on at the last minute.  We have wonderful memories of this special celebration that you helped make possible.  Thank you so much!!!
